In the produce aisle in my local supermarket, a small strobe light flashes periodically and a recorded rumble of thunder sounds just before overhead sprinklers come on to keep the veggies moist and fresh.

Last week, I went to the Friday Farmers Market in downtown Stockton looking for a weather picture. It was raining lightly but steadily that day. The vendors were probably none too pleased that the wet weather kept the crowds light. Normally used for shade, The vendors huddled under their canopies to keep dry. The vegetables on the outer edges of the vendors’ tables received a light misting of rain, just like the ones in the supermarket. Only this time it was provided by Mother Nature, no warning thunder or lightning needed.
